Career Assessments


Learning about yourself is part of the college experience. Now that you have begun your journey at Winthrop — you have probably started to think about things like: Did I pick the right major? Should I choose a minor? How can I study and learn more effectively to get a good grade? What type of job will I get after graduation?

 

In the CDI we offer the STRONG Interest Inventory and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) career assessments for Winthrop students, either current or alumni, to help them make sure their educational path is steering them towards their career goals. We also offer the STRONG Interest Inventory and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) career assessments to classes and organizations. Please email careerdev@winthrop.edu with how many tests and your office/organizations information to recieve an invoice.
